Transcript for Trump continues to slam McCain
Next tonight, president trump lashing out at the highly anticipated Mueller report today. The president calling the report, quote, ridiculous, but he also said, let the public see and late today, the president unleashing a new attack on the late senator John McCain, who passed away nearly seven months ago now. His wife, Cindy mcgain, just today on the hate she's now receive egg, and Meghan McCain reacting, too. Here's our chief white house correspondent Jonathan Karl. Reporter: Standing before a line of tanks at a factory in Lima, Ohio, president trump launched an all-out assault on late senator, and war hero, So I have to be honest. I never liked him much. Hasn't been for me. I really probably never will. Reporter: The pro-military crowd, silent, as trump told them he never got a thank you for authorizing the use of an air force jet to transfer McCain's casket, along with other military support for his memorial service. I gave him the kind of funeral that he wanted, which, as president, I had to approve. I don't care about this. I didn't get a thank you. That's okay. We sent him on the way, but I wasn't a fan of John McCain. So, now what we can say, now, we're all set. I don't think I have to answer that question, but the press keeps, what do you think of McCain? What do you think? Not my kind of guy but some people like him and I think that's great. Reporter: The president started his renewed attacks on McCain over the weekend, and today, McCain's window, Cindy, revealed one of the hateful messages she's received in recent days. On "The view" today, McCain's daughter Meghan called the president's attacks "A bizarre new low." If I had told my dad, seven months after you're dead, you're going to be dominating the news and all over Twitter, he would think it's hilarious that our president was so jealous of him that he was dominating the news cycle in death, as well. Reporter: Most Republican senators have resisted directly criticizing the president for his attacks on McCain. But today, Georgia Republican Johnny Isakson, who chairs the veterans affairs committee, says enough is enough. It's deplorable what he said. We should never reduce the service that people give to this country. Jon Karl live with us from the house. And this all comes as Washington waiting for special counsel Bob Mueller to hand in his report. And today our cameras, you saw this, Jon, catching a glimpse of Mueller as he arrived at work. And you asked the president, if he wants Mueller's report to be made public, here's what the president said. Reporter: Mr. President, does the American people have the right to see the Mueller all right? I don't mind. I told the house, let them see it. Let it come out. Let people see it. Let it come out, he says. I made immediate news today. And president trump saying he's looking forward to reading the report, as well? Reporter: He did just a week ago, he said that there should not be a Mueller report, but today, he said that he wants to read it and so do tens of millions of his supporters. David? Jon Karl with us again tonight. Jon, thank you.
